New 1198 owner
 
Hello all. Just purchased a 2011 1198, 1-owner, all original with 4224 miles. I am riding for a couple months on the road this year then planning to turn it into a track bike over the winter for 2020 track season. I will be pulling all the original stuff off and replacing with track stuff.

Any recommendations as far as upgrades would be greatly appreciated. This will replace my 2004 GSX-R1000 as my primary track bike. I still have my 2009 GSX-R1000 as a back up.

I have a nice coolant hose kit for you, the original rubber hoses should be replaced at some point anyway: https://www.ducati.org/forums/parts/...-848-1x98.html

I'm thinking you should just give it to me and take up crack. It's cheaper and less addictive then a Ducati track bike.

ECU flash, BST rims, carbon everything, good suspension tuning, aluminum tank....maybe some hot models to take pics of with it and a gorgeous umbrella girl....I'm sure I missed a few things there but my mind stopped working after the women popped in there.

Thank you for the offer but I am a basic black kind of guy. When I replace the hoses, they will be just black.

Thank you for the input, I plan on getting addicted. I have been riding on the tracks in the UK for the past 7-years and it has been brilliant. I am hoping to make the smile even bigger with the Duc.

I am just a simple person. Basic black blank fairings and only performance/protection mods. As I am not a racer, BST is just not in the cards. I am looking at the 1198SP Wheels but that is about it. Bike will go to JHP Performance over the Winter to have them apply their magic. I am looking for over 100 lbs-ft of torque. I do not plan on using DTC.

Keep them coming

The best track upgrade for me was a slipper clutch , I highly recommend one if your bike does not have one already. High compression L twin ducati bikes will easily lock up the rear wheel under hard braking, also get a woodcraft clutch cover to protect it in the event of a crash.

Thank you, it is on the list. Looking hard at STM as they are UK based.

Went with the Sigma Slipper. Very quiet. Have the forged Marchesini wheels and Dunlop D212GP Racer slicks. Have an Ohlins rear and my local BSB suspension mechanic will work his magic on it and the forks. No tune this year. Ceramic coated my 70mm Termignoni and wrapped to keep the heat down. Woodcraft clutch cover. Vortex rear sets. Translogic quick shifter as stock would not do reverse shift.
